If you’re one of the thousands upon thousands of people making the trek out to the California desert this weekend for Coachella, then please remember to protect your skin! This season is shaping up to be slightly cooler than most (like high 80s vs. high 100s), but you’ll still need to make a conscious effort to stay protected.

Here are a couple SPF-infused ideas:


From left: Kiehl’s Lip Balm SPF 15, $9.50, Murad Age-Proof Suncare Waterproof Sunblock SPF 30, $30, Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45, $30  Sephora, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, $42 Sephora.

Lauren Conrad showed up to her ”Sweet Little Lies” book signing wearing one of our favorite spring 2010 lip trends. Forget red this season, it’s all about pink! OK red is still relevant, but pink lips are hotter this spring, and we couldn’t think of a better way to pretty up our pout.

Get Lauren’s candy-coated look with these five must-have pink lip shades:

1. Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in ‘My Treat’, $18 Benefit Cosmetics      

2. Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss in Fuchsia Revolution, $19 Sephora

3. Nars Semi-Matte Lipstick in Funny Face, $24 Nars Cosmetics

4. Nars Lip Gloss in Easy Lover, $24 Sephora
5. MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouveau, $14 Mac Cosmetics

hourglassprodigy.jpgHourglass Cosmetics’ new Prodigy Lip Gloss has garnered quite a bit of press lately, we had to try it for our selves and see what all the fuss was about. Its streamlined packaging puts it five steps ahead of your everyday lip gloss — anything that slides seamless into our back pocket is a winner with us! — but its moisturizing and non-tacky characteristics make it even more appealing. It really lives up to it’s ultra-hydrating selling point and it’s not sticky at all like many glosses tend to be. The color fades and we wished it lasted a bit longer, but that wouldn’t discourage us from buying another bottle — it’s THAT chic. We’re fans of  ‘Surreal’ and ‘Eden’. Sephora, $26
We’ve tried a lot of lip products, and let’s be honest: as product junkies we rarely have complaints! Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquers are no exception…we’re absolutely in love with them.

The formula is lightweight so it feels like a dream on our lips, while still allowing for big color payoff. It’s also surprisingly long wearing (lasted us an entire day running around during Fashion Week!), which means less time re-applying and more time looking fab.

Our only gripe is that we wish it were a bit easier to get product on the wand….but only because we love it so much and want tons of it on our lips!

Lip Lacquer is available in Sheer, Cream, Sparkling, and Pearl Glow formulas in a wide range of shades, each equally as covet-worthy. Try Pearl Glow in Sunkiss, a peachy rose new for Spring, and our current fave.


Beauty addicts rejoice: CHANEL’S new Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Colours inspired by the legendary ‘Coco’ Chanel have arrived! After taming our excitement, we ran into trouble deciding on a shade. We narrowed it down to Camelia (a deep rose), Legende (reddish-brown), and Paris (a sexy deep red), but finally ended with Paris. As was expected, the color glides on like a silk nightie and left our lips soft and luscious. ‘Coco’ would be proud.

CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour is available online at Neiman Marcus. $30
